    And just now, a moment ago on the Sunday night game halftime show. Cowgirls vs. Beagles. They just said if he had not had a gun he and the Mother of his child would still be alive.
    It’s the guns fault.

    Well, without a gun, there are still lots of choices for a big, strong, football player against a woman. If he could get close enough to put his hands on her, he could kill her. Of course there is always defenestration. There are also lots of choices for suicide. Hanging, jumping, poison, asphyxiation, etc., etc.

    Bob Costas's comment didnt blame the GUN... He blamed the "Gun Culture society"

    He figgures,,its the ones in society that believe in the second ammendment.
    Again,, an attack on our Culture as Americans.

    I think SNF,, and NBC,,, and COSTAS should leave their commentary to the topics they understand most... and that would be jock straps,,, and their contents,,,,,,,

    Bob Costas used this tragedy and his bully pulpit/megaphone to spew his secular progressive message.

    The gun is not at fault here.

    There you go, Gooser. Here is a CNN commentary in the same vein that did not blame guns.

    I wonder why not much has been said about the Cleveland Browns employee that committed suicide by hanging himself at their practice facility? I realize he did not use a "weapon" but still a tragedy none the less. So to echo Ken Bora's post if rope was not so readily available this individual would still be alive.
